Identify Your Living Room’s Style
Three popular living room styles are minimalist, farmhouse chic, and mid-century modern. Trending window treatments can complement these interior design themes and enhance the overall aesthetic of the room. For example, roller shades and sheer curtains offer crisp and clean lines for a minimalist look, while hardwood shutters compliment farmhouse decor and patterned drapes or Roman shades are the best window treatment for a mid-century vibe.
Benefits of Living Room Window Treatments
Living rooms are often multi-purpose spaces that serve as a place to entertain guests and relax with family. Window treatments can provide privacy when needed, whether you’re watching a movie or having an intimate conversation. Living rooms can also be susceptible to temperature changes, whether it’s from the sun streaming in or heat escaping through the windows.
Treatments can help regulate the temperature of the room, making it more comfortable year-round. Natural light is also often present, which can be both a blessing and a curse. Too much light can make it difficult to watch TV or work on the computer, but window treatments can help filter the light and reduce glare when needed.
Shutters for the Living Room
Living room shutters are a versatile and elegant option known for their timeless appeal and functional benefits. These interior window coverings are made of hardwood or composite materials and feature adjustable louvers, which are a great way to control natural light, privacy, and airflow with ease. Norman® customizable shutters complement a variety of decor styles, and are highly durable, easy to clean, and energy-efficient.

Choose the Right Window Treatment for Your Living Room
Your unique functionality needs, choice of materials, color and pattern preferences, and the desired ambiance all play pivotal roles in determining the ideal window treatments for a living room. Consider these key factors:
- Functionality Needs: light control and privacy are top priorities for selecting the right window treatment. Don’t forget to consider energy efficiency and ease of use as well.
- Choosing the Right Material: wood and faux wood can create warmth and a luxurious look, while fabric options can add texture and desired insulation to your windows.
- Color and Pattern: Window treatments can match or contrast with the living room’s color scheme. A monochromatic look can create a sense of continuity while contrasting colors or patterns can serve as a focal point or provide a pop of color.
- Desired ambiance: Sleek and simple window treatments are the best option for a modern aesthetic, while soft, textured fabrics and natural materials encourage a cozy atmosphere.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which type of window treatments are best for a living room?
There are many types of window treatments that can be used in a living room, but the most popular are blinds and shades. Shutters and drapes are also common choices, but it really comes down to your personal style.
Does keeping shades closed affect living room temperature?
Yes, it can. If you want to keep your living room cool in the summer and warm in the winter, consider investing in insulated shades. Insulated shades work by trapping air between the window and the treatment, which can help regulate the temperature in your living room. Investing in a window treatment solution like Portrait™ Honeycomb Shades can help keep your space at a comfortable temperature and result in energy savings.
Which living room window treatments allow light but aren’t too sheer?
Opaque drapes and light-filtering shades are great options. Smart design light filtering shades like Norman® Soluna™ Roller Shades will repel almost 100% of incoming light on one side and add a boost of aesthetic colors and patterns on the other.
Are there motorized window treatments for a living room?
Yes! Motorized window treatments are becoming more and more popular. They’re especially convenient if you have large windows or hard-to-reach windows. Norman® USA offers a wide variety of motorized window treatment options for your living room. From shutters to shades, we have a solution that will fit your needs.
Can you put faux wood blinds in the living room?
Yes! Faux wood blinds are a great option for living rooms. They add a touch of elegance and can be customized to match your existing room décor. Faux wood blinds may be preferable to natural wood blinds in circumstances when real wood may be damaged by sunlight or heat.
